Blessed Samhain

As the veil thins
Worlds merge to be as one
Spirit walk among us
as we welcome our ancestors back to be with us.

The hounds of annwyn ride as the sun sets
collecting the souls of those who have left us
Where they will rest and reflect in the summerlands
either to wait for us
or to come back into our lives

A time to cleanse
to clear our hearts and minds of things that have befallen us,
of loves lost, friends gone,
of memories that hurt us

A time to start over
with joy in our hearts
and fire in our spirits
with the wisdom of the elders
and the teachings of our ancestors

It is a good time to be a witch
We know our responsibilities
our need to ensure the ways of the old ones are not forgotten
and that we pass on the teachings,
to those who wish to know.

Blessed Samhain,

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
